Prehistoric teeth unearthed at a site in Jersey reveal signs of interbreeding between Neanderthals and our own species, scientists say.

UK experts re-studied 13 teeth found between 1910 and 1911 at La Cotte de St Brelade in the island’s south-west.

They were long regarded as being typical Neanderthal specimens, but the reassessment also uncovered features characteristic of modern human teeth.

The teeth may represent some of the last known Neanderthal remains.

As such, they might even yield clues to what caused the disappearance of our close evolutionary cousins.

The Neanderthals evolved around 400,000 years ago and inhabited a large area from western Europe to Siberia.

They were typically shorter and stockier than modern humans, with a thick ridge of bone overhanging the eyes.

They finally disappeared around 40,000 years ago, just as anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens), a newly arrived species from Africa, was settling in Europe.

However, the two types of human may have overlapped for at least 5,000 years.

The human teeth are thought to be around 48,000 years old, close to the presumed Neanderthal extinction date of 40,000 years ago.

So, rather than going extinct in the traditional sense, were Neanderthal groups simply absorbed into incoming modern human populations?

“This now needs to be a scenario that’s seriously considered, alongside others, and it’s going to emerge as we get more understanding of the process of genetic admixture,” Dr Pope told BBC News.

“But certainly, that word ‘extinct’ now starts to lose its meaning where you can see multiple episodes of admixture and the retention of a significant proportion of Neanderthal DNA in humans beyond sub-Saharan Africa.”

Neanderthals contributed 2-3% of the genomes – the genetic instruction booklet for making a person – of people with ancestry from outside Africa.

“This idea of a hybrid population could be tested by the recovery of ancient DNA from the teeth, something that is now under investigation,” said Prof Stringer.

The study has been published in the Journal of Human Evolution.

Extract from Contact Report 544
… Then I have a question related to the Neanderthals, that is to say, their extinction. Again and again, on television and in newspapers and magazines, reports about them are provided, whereby the scientists, however, still do not know what the real reason was for their extinction. There is the widest variety of horrible theories about that, including one which states that the Neanderthals were exterminated by the then emerging human Homo sapiens, indeed, as you yourself also once said. But is that really true up to the last detail? Among other things, we also both spoke about this on August 11th, 2008, at the 469th contact conversation, where you said this: (excerpt from Volume 11, page 422, sentences 135-139):
135. It was indeed the case that in the most various locations the modern human beings interbred with Neanderthals and begot offspring.
136. This however was not the rule, but occurred rather sparsely.
137. As a rule, the modern human beings hunted the Neanderthals and killed them, to use them as food, because the early homo sapiens were cannibals, and as such they, by and by, wiped out the Neanderthals.
138. Partly, the modern human beings held Neanderthals as captives, which they killed and ate in case of need for food.
139. Such captives were also used, on certain occasions, to perform sexual acts with the homo sapiens, and indeed with both sexes. As a result, also certain female Neanderthals and homo sapiens bore hybrids as offspring, however which was not often the case.
Additionally, I now want to ask you whether that which you have explained is comprehensive in relation to the extinction of the Neanderthals, or whether there were yet other factors which played a role. You did indeed once say later that the extinction of these early human beings led back not only to the then emergence of modern human beings, even though they exterminated different groups of Neanderthals. By the way, today the term Neanderthal is also written with a “th”, thus, Neanderthals. I also do not know why. If you could explain some more to me in general now, about these early human beings and their environment, and so forth, as well as whether there were perhaps other reasons for their extinction than those you named for me. For our scientists it is namely still not clear what the real reason was for the extinction, consequently their opinions differ. Maybe you can bring some more clarity to the matter?
That which I have said to you with my explanation in the 469th contact conversation corresponds very well to accuracy. But if you are mentioning the entire thing – questioning whether everything is comprehensively explained to the last detail – then there is this to say to that: that this is not the case. In fact, the modern human beings who emerged then, exterminated entire groups and tribes of Neanderthals, but also, for their final demise, anatomical influences as well as natural catastrophic climatic influences existed which I have hitherto never named, and which ultimately ended the existence of these early human beings. Aside from the fact that modern human beings arrived in Europe from western Asia – who often ate human flesh and were anatomically far more advanced than the Neanderthals, who they hunted down, killed and used as food – there are, as previously mentioned, other important factors which led to the extinction of these early human beings. But if I am now to name still further important things, then I will be glad to do so and thus draw on our records, which we possess and with which I am familiar. Thereby, I will not proceed chronologically, however, rather simply as I remember the facts at the moment. So the first thing to say is that that which I explained – regarding modern human beings’ cannibalism and in relation to the sexual acts between them and the Neanderthals – in fact, corresponds to the reality of that time. Although, against all adversity at the time, the Neanderthals held their own for a little more than 250,000 years, but, in the evolution of their body and metabolism, they were adjusted to the then prevailing very cold climate. That finally led to their last doom because, since, in a short time, extremely strong climatic changes occurred, the effect for the Neanderthals was the extremely negative impact on their food supply, consequently many began to suffer from hunger. Over time this led not only to degenerative effects, but also often to death. In spite of their wildness, they were social entities and held tightly together, whereby they lived, however, only in small groups, and their total number always remained small. When diseases arose among them, they concerned themselves collectively with the sick and nursed them. Their diet consisted primarily of meat, which they captured by corresponding hunts for all kinds of small and large animals, whereby they then shared the meat among themselves in a remarkably communal way. However, they also nourished themselves with berries, fruits and plants, but the meat always remained the staple food, which was quite especially necessary for their entire constitution. However, basically, they were poor at digesting food, in regard to which I have something more to say. Physically, they were very strong, and also all their internal and external constitution was extremely robust and adjusted in such a way to withstand very cold temperatures, which was particularly important because they indeed lived during a very cold time. They were also clever and had their own – if still primitive – language. They led their existence in productive hunting areas in the then forests in which they also lived and knew safe shelters, in whose protection they also had their accommodations. However, all this changed uncommonly quickly, as around 45,000 years ago the climate began to change drastically, in addition to the fact that modern human beings made their appearance and hunted them down, kept them prisoners, engaged in sexual relations with them, but also killed and ate them when there was need for food.
The emerging climate change gradually also altered the forests and landscapes, consequently, gigantic open expanses emerged in which the Neanderthals could not hold their own, and, as a consequence of their cumbersomeness, also could not hunt. Their employment was the forests in which they could stalk the game to be hunted and could kill it with primitive, heavy spears provided with well-formed stone points. These heavy killing instruments and the ponderousness and clumsiness of the Neanderthals made it impossible for them to hold their own in the vast open plains. Moreover, they could not stalk the wildlife on open land because it fled quickly if it sighted or caught the scent of the human beings. So the Neanderthals crept away and hid in the now thinner forests, but where they also had more and more difficulties in relation to the hunt because, when stalking the animals, they had no more cover because of the forest areas becoming lighter. Furthermore, it was the case that the Neanderthals could not adequately utilise the nutrients from meat, plants, berries and fruits and could not efficiently convert them into energy, consequently they had to constantly eat large quantities. The cells – and their energies and strengths – of the early human beings were of an entirely different nature compared with the much lighter and more flexibly-built modern human beings. With the Neanderthals, the entire metabolism was adapted to produce heat, which was absolutely necessary as a consequence of the then prevailing cold. This was completely different from the modern human beings who had emerged, and were downright puny compared to the Neanderthals and displayed totally different characteristics to the heavily-built, early human beings. And since Neanderthals increasingly lacked food, it naturally led to many starving, while others were hunted down by the modern cannibalistic human beings and captured, to use them as welcome sex objects and as food in need.
Since, through the sexual acts between the Neanderthals and the modern human beings, offspring were also conceived, it happened that the offspring increasingly had the characteristics of the modern human beings, consequently, this is another factor which led to the extinction and extermination of pure Neanderthals. And since evolution never stops, the result was that the modern human beings also evolved further until they became today’s Homo sapiens sapiens whereby, to this day, preserved in the genomes of many Earth human beings is the inherited legacy of the Neanderthals. Indeed they became extinct nearly 30,000 years ago, but their genetic legacy persists today and will also continue from generation to generation into the future. Regarding the direct descendents of the Neanderthals as well as those in which the modern human beings have been involved, it should be explained, however, that, also in this respect, factors of extinction played a role. Compared to the modern human beings, Neanderthals exhibited a larger skull, which made birth very difficult because of the birth canal often not adequately dilating, for which reason many females died in childbirth or through severe life-threatening infections. Births among Neanderthals were therefore particularly complicated and difficult, as well as often fatal, which was also the reason that the numbers of these early humans did not greatly increase, and they only appeared in small groups. But in addition to the genome of Neanderthals, also traces of the genetic material of other close relatives have found their way into today’s Earth human beings living in Europe. While now, among the approximately 8 billion Earth human beings, there are no more pure Neanderthals, their heritage is still contained to a greater or lesser extent in the genome of many Earth human beings.
And, as you say, the fact is that with the terrestrial scientists, there are many theories regarding the Neanderthals, who, in their pure form, have not existed for approximately 30,000 years. But since their heritage still exists today in small parts – namely up to seven per cent – in the genome of many Earth human beings, it must really be asked whether the Neanderthals have actually died out, because if some Earth human beings nowadays are observed and considered, it could actually be assumed that Neanderthals have still not become extinct. This fact alone, of the Neanderthal heritage in the genome of many modern Earth humans, proves that these early human beings had sexual relationships with the modern human beings, from which offspring emerged that further propagated over many generations and have passed on their heritage – up into the present time.
